Writing in France at the Age of Charlie Hebdo

Iegor Gran, a well known French writer (born 1964), author of 15 novels that scored warm responses in the press and won some prestigious literary prizes in France.
The novelty, playfulness, and self-reflectivity of his prose led some critics to compare it with that of Vladimir Nabokov.
Iegor is also a regular contributor to the satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo (please see: http://www.liberation.fr/france/2015/01/07/iegor-gran-charlie-hebdo-c-est-un-monument_1175644)
His talk at Stanford “Writing in France in the Age of Charlie Hebdo” will discuss the current literary scene in France.
